Delhi University (DU) has decided to conduct joint entrance test for Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Business Economics (BBE) and Bachelor of Financial Investment and Analysis (BFIA) from this academic year. The joint entrance test for all the three courses will be held on June 6 in Delhi, Chandigarh, Lucknow and Kolkata for which the application procedure will be made available from April 5 to May 4, 2010 online.
Those who did not have maths as their subject in class XII are now not eligible to apply in any of these academic courses this year onwards. According to DU's records, there were 15,000 students applying for these courses last year, indicating the popularity of the programme. BBS has so far been a much sought-after option after B.Com for students of commerce who do not study maths in classes XI and XII. All the other viable options for commerce students, which is, B.Com (honours), BA (honours) Economics, BBE and BFIA, only those who have studied maths in class XII stand eligible.
In Delhi University BBE is offered in 10 colleges, BBS in three colleges - Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies and Keshav Mahavidyala. BFIA is offered only in Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.
